|One-of-a-kind 20-inch cloth doll by Gloria Grandy of Cre8tiv Glory|
Doll artist, and Facebook friend, Gloria Grandy, makes dolls under the name, Cre8tiv Glory. After viewing photos of some of her past dolls, I inquired about the above doll's availability in late November 2017. Because she was still available and had already begun tugging at my heart strings, I made the necessary arrangements to bring this doll to her new home.
Her entry in my spreadsheet reads as follows:
|OOAK 20-inch cloth doll with hand-painted facial features, Afro hairstyle, dressed in faux fur zebra dress with black faux leather belt, strappy black sandals; wears gold hoop earrings, and brass-colored beaded necklace with ankh pendant.|
|This profile photo illustrates the realistic texture of her Afro and also provides a close up of her brass hoop earrings.|
Her handmade strappy sandals are made of cloth with felt insoles. Her toenails, like her fingernails, are painted pink.
Because of her huge black Afro, I named this doll Angela. A few friends, six in all, traveled with Angela to her new home:
|Ms. Grandy also makes flat felt bookmarks. Each is a one of a kind with sewn-on fabric clothing, yarn hair, and painted facial features.|

I placed one of these inside the Florence Griffith-Joyner book that was sent to my niece for Christmas. I now have five of Gloria's bookmarks. They sell for $5 each plus shipping. No two are alike. Visit Gloria's Cre8tive Glory page on Facebook if interested in acquiring bookmarks and/or to view other dolls she has made.
